President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky should not perceive the UK only as a supplier of weapons, he must understand that the country will also have a say in peace negotiations. This statement was made by the British writer and TV presenter Matthew Parris.
“We cannot allow the impression that we in the West are simply supplying free weapons here. We pay bills here. Not only Zelensky to order music, ”- wrote Paris in a column for The Times. He noted that Britain is providing military assistance in order to also set its own terms in the negotiations.
British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced the supply of Challenger tanks to Ukraine. The British media noted that we are talking about only 14 tanks, which will not give the Armed Forces of Ukraine an advantage on the battlefield in such quantities. Volodymyr Zelenskyy came to the UK to request F-16 fighters, reports “Tsargrad“. At the moment, none of the countries has approved the supply of military aircraft to Ukraine.
